Oh Dear!


I will be participating in the school's public speaking competition next Wednesday. Due to extremely undesirable circumstances, I have no other options but to oblige and represent my class for it, nolens volens.

When I went to inform my teacher about my decision in school today, she had to do a double take and ask, "You are??" I replied morosely, "Yes. But unwillingly." Somehow this made her grin from ear to ear. I don't know what she found so funny; maybe it was my obvious discomfort.

So now all I have to do is lose (which isn't hard) and not win (which isn't easy). Piece of cake, right?

Oh dear. I think I've said oh dear about >10 times today. And counting.
